Pretty sure we went slightly wrong with this. The start is awkward but a swift heel-hook sorts it out. Then pretty easy climbing leads up to just below the roof, then Mike ran it out massively swinging with his hands on the ledge and limited feet after getting stuck on the ledge above, I can't help but think you were probably meant to shuffle along the ledge. We both swung right all the way to Great Buttress - extremely pumped - and finished off the last awkward moves of that, must have been a scary lead!
